Abstract Tans have a light tan-colored band that is surrounded completely by a brilliant red band. This red is not the same as the Red Life Color or the Red Overlay. Abstract Tans’ personality traits are entirely different.
The bright and curious Abstract Tans are unique characters in the mental family. They are the most childlike of all the Tans. They are open, friendly, and outgoing. They have incredibly optimistic personalities. Though they frequently have high energy, it is also usually scattered. Although they see all the details and steps that need to be handled, they do not proceed in an orderly fashion. They have random thought processes. Rather than proceeding step-by-step, they attempt to work on all the steps simultaneously. They do not sense that any step is a priority — the first step is just another piece in the project, as is the last one. All other Tan personalities process information in a logical and sequential manner.
Abstract Tans see projects in much the same way as they see jigsaw puzzles. They see all the pieces laid out on the table, but are not sure where to begin to put the puzzle together. They will choose any piece of the puzzle and then jump over to another section of the puzzle for no apparent reason. Eventually, all the pieces are put in place and the puzzle is completed.
